actually, this demo doesn't have alot to do with pixels, except they I used them to load 4000+ rectangles from an image
anyway this demo was for me to see what kind of performance Slick could deliver with 4000+ rotating, translating rectangles. I also used this demo to develop some camera programming for future projects.
basically you just have a large array of rectangles that make up the "Slick" logo. you can use your arrow keys to zoom, the a/z keys to zoom in/out, and the spacebar to explode the image (or reconstruct it)
you can check the demo page out here
, which includes a cool video of the demo in action. or you can just run it via webstart here
